ARTPIL / Prescription .060
locusts by day, crickets by night

 

The evening terrace delivers the view of the summer’s end. You, with sunglasses and tea, add an hour to the twilight breeze. Wicker and linen abide with sandals upraised on the stone slate of the fountain…. A bird is nesting in the pergola. A willow leans in to the shade and weeps. The complacent canicule curbed and the days grow shorter with the laughter of children neatly subsiding….

Welcome to ARTPIL’s .060th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

 

Anselm Kiefer

Memory Palace

Memory Palace is a major group exhibition extending across White Cube’s London galleries featuring more than 90 works by over 40 artists, including Cerith Wyn Evans, Robert IrwinAndreas Gursky, Etel Adnan, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, and others, inspiring reflections on the forms and themes of memory. On view through September 15, 2018 at White Cube.

 

The List / UNITED

The List

The List, complied by UNITED and propagated by artist Banu Cennetoglu, traces the deaths of over 34,000 refugees, asylum seekers and migrants who lost their lives around the borders of Europe since 1993. Its installation twice vandalized and torn down at Liverpool Biennial recently, we present it here in its entirety.

 

Dennis Hlynsky

Tracing the Ephemeral / Dennis Hlynsky

Depicting the quality that collective nouns describe, the work in this show represents a study of the fleeting gestural perambulations of creatures who thrive in large numbers. –Dennis Hlynsky. At Diehl Gallery through September 2, 2018.

 

Wifredo Lam

Nouveau Nouveau Monde / Wifredo Lam

Internationally recognized as one of the pioneers of modernism, this exhibit of Wifredo Lam includes an important group of major paintings ranging from rarely seen masterpieces from his six-decade career. At Galerie Gmurzynska through September 30, 2018.

 

Leticia Ramos

A Grande Onda / Leticia Ramos

With Leticia Ramos, formal studies about photographic material and construction of images without any scenography display cohabit: the goal being less scenography and more photographic paper surfaces. Through September 8, 2018 at Galeria Filomena Soares.

 

Ulrike Koenigshofer

20 Propositions

As parts to one whole, this group exhibition is considered as an unfinished series of experiments, speculations, and encounters strung together with notions of the temporary and the ephemeral are prioritized. On exhibit through September 23, 2018 at Salzburger Kunstverein.

  • Maggie Lee: Magazine
    Feb 10 – May 20, 2024
    Kunsthalle Zürich
    Zürich, Switzerland

    The exhibition Magazine was born out of the artist’s long-held desire to publish her own magazine – a very personal magazine that would nonetheless circulate further than just her own circle of friends. Maggie Lee’s passion for this medium of distribution was inspired by her work in copy stores, and above all by creating zines since her teenage years in New Jersey. There is a special appeal to the creative self-realisation in self-publishing (more…)

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)

  • Adraint Khadafhi Bereal: The Black Yearbook
    Publication
    4 Color Books / Penguin Random House
    International

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.
